***************
4th International Central and Eastern European Conference on Multi-Agent 
Systems
15-17 September 2005
Budapest, Hungary
http://www.ceemas.org/ceemas05

About the Conference
====================
The aim of the CEEMAS conference series is to provide a biennial forum for 
the presentation of multi-agent research and development results. With its 
particular geographical orientation towards Central and Eastern Europe, 
CEEMAS has become an internationally recognised event with participants 
from all over the world. CEEMAS’05 expects papers from every fundamental 
research fields of multi agent systems. Papers which focus on the following 
three areas are especially welcome: scalability and reconfigurability of 
multi agent systems; deployment scenarios exploiting synergies of multi 
agent systems and other related technologies like grid, web services and 
semantic web; applications of multi agent systems in design and 
manufacturing, transport and logistics, space applications, tourism 
industry, e-commerce and many other application areas. The Organising 
Committee solicits research submissions for the main research track of the 
conference, as well as for the accompanying industrial and posters track. A 
tutorial program is also an integral part of CEEMAS’05. See the details at 
the back of this paper or visit the conference web site.
The conference proceedings including the accepted papers of the main 
conference, selected papers from the posters and industrial track, will be 
published by Springer Verlag in the LNAI series. Revised and extended 
versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the 
Applied Artificial Intelligence Journal 
(http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/08839514.asp). For further details 
of the CEEMAS’05 conference and the history of the CEEMAS conference series 
please, refer to the web page of the conference.

Important Dates
===============
Full paper submission: 8 April, 2005
Notification of acceptance: 13 May, 2005
Camera ready papers: 17 June, 2005
Conference: 15-17 September, 2005

Submission Details
==================
All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by at least two 
members of the Program Committee. Selection criteria include accuracy and 
originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of 
presentation. Authors of all submissions are requested to format their 
papers according to Springer LNAI guidelines 
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and submit them 
electronically as described on the conference web page at 
http://www.ceemas.org/ceemas05/submission.html

Research track submissions:
---------------------------
Paper submissions for the main research track of the conference should be 
formatted according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 10 
pages, including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit 
their papers electronically on the conference submission web page.

Posters track
-------------
The conference poster session provides an opportunity to present the work 
in progress, enabling to discuss projects with others in the field. 
Students are encouraged to submit a poster presentation. The presenters 
will be invited to contribute an article as well. Papers should be 
formatted according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 3 
pages, including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit 
their papers electronically on the conference submission web page.

Industrial track
----------------
The CEEMAS conference provides the opportunity to submit papers on genuine 
applications of agent technology. Papers describing concrete, practical 
implementations with industrial links are encouraged opposed to pure 
conceptual plans or potential applications. Our goal is to demonstrate the 
real life value and commercial reality of multi-agent systems as well as to 
foster the communication between academia and industry on this field. If 
your paper describes practical experience and real applications, you should 
submit it to the industrial track. System descriptions should be formatted 
according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 2 pages, 
including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit their 
papers electronically on the conference submission web page.

Tutorial proposals
------------------
We solicit tutorials in all areas of agent-oriented models, technologies 
and methodologies, aimed at either students (basic tutorials) or 
researchers (new and hot topics). Tutorial duration is either half-day or 
full-day. The tutorial pro­posal should include a brief summary and 
outline, specific goals and objectives, expected background of the 
audience, a bio­graphical sketch of the presenter(s), as well as a sample 
(15 to 25 slides) of the presentation. All tutorial proposals should be 
directed to the Tutorials Chair Andrea Omicini <andrea.omicini@unibo.it>, 
and should be sent before 21st February 2005.

Submission policies
===================
CEEMAS’05 will not accept any paper, which has already been published or 
accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. These 
restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and 
similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without 
archival proceedings.
For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the 
conference to present the paper. Each author can give only one 
presentation. Papers without at least one author registering by the early 
registration deadline will be automatically excluded from the conference 
programme and the proceedings.
The best paper of the conference, to be selected by the Programme Committee 
at the conference, will receive the Best Paper Award during the conference.
